Photos And Videos From George Floyd Memorial Service In Minneapolis

Celebrities, civil rights activists, politicians and many others gathered in Minneapolis for memorial service to pay their respects to George Floyd whose death at the hands of police has sparked protests nationwide and calls for an end to racial injustice.

Floyd, a 46-year-old Minneapolis man, died after former police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for over eight minutes when he was arrested for suspicion of forgery.

Chauvin has since been charged with second-degree murder. In addition, the three other Minneapolis police officers — Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao — who were also fired for their involvement in Floyd’s death have been charged with aiding and abetting murder.

During the moment of silence, Rev. Jesse Jackson, standing, cried out “I can’t breathe” at least twice.
